The Lost Sisterhood: A Novel

The Lost Sisterhood
by Anne Fortier
Release Date: March 11, 2014

The Lost Sisterhood tells the story of Diana, a young and aspiring--but somewhat aimless--professor at Oxford. Her fascination with the history of the Amazons, the legendary warrior women of ancient Greece, is deeply connected with her own family's history; her grandmother in particular. When Diana is invited to consult on an archeological excavation, she quickly realizes that here, finally, may be the proof that the Amazons were real.

The Amazons' "true" story--and Diana's history--is threaded along with this modern day hunt. This historical back-story focuses on a group of women, and more specifically on two sisters, whose fight to survive takes us through ancient Athens and to Troy, where the novel reinvents our perspective on the famous Trojan War.

The storyline of this sounds so intriguing, and incredibly unique. Plus, for some weird reason i have this obsession with Oxford University, especially when a book takes place there. Makes it jump even further up on my TBR pile. Can't wait to give this one a go!
